The MMAC Theater announces the further extension of the only weekly family magic show in NYC, the Off-Broadway run of The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things, extended by popular demand through June 30, 2012.

About the show: The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things is a Magic Show with a mind of it's own. Magician Max Darwin makes objects appear out of thin air, as the laws of physics are defied, and miracles are performed inches from spectators' faces. As the props onstage seem intent on surprising even the magician himself, this out of control show bursts with striking visual magic, comedy and juggling, and loads of audience participation.  The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things is the wackiest, most interactive, highest energy magic show for families on the market today.    

The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things is performed at the MMAC Theater located in the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center at 248 W. 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) in the Lincoln Center area.
